Dr. Beisser has the distinction of being the first woman and the first faculty member from the School of Education to receive this award. In the past five years, she has published 36 juried publications in peer reviewed journals, 24 juried conference publications in national and international proceedings, and presented 145 juried conference presentations at state, national, and international conferences.
